Roller element bearings play a vital role in most engineering applications. The current shift towards sustainability and green energy add more challenges to the tribology of rolling bearings. This list of challenges is extensive and includes harsh lubrication conditions of roller bearings in wind turbines with frequent start–stops or electric discharge machining (EDM) in EV applications. This necessitates the demand for more efficient and reliable rolling element bearings, covering a variety of aspects, including geometric optimization, as well as lubricant and material properties.
The advances in simulations and testing tools aids the development of more accurate and efficient predictive methods. This Special Issue aims to provide the latest research and developments in the field of rolling element bearing tribology. We invite submissions from both academic and industrial colleagues to form a comprehensive collection of research in this field.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Machines is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2400 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
